Back & Books

I'm back from my catch-up hiatus, and the first news I got was that I scored this ARC from Library Thing's Early Reviewers program:



Since I'm a history buff who grew up in Florida, and loves the 1920s, I'm really looking forward to reading it.

I've also picked my book of the month for August, which was Running Wild by Susan Andersen. To give you the short version, this is a very well-written romantic suspense/romp through the South American jungle with lots of imagination and adventure, and I thought both the male and female protagonists were unusual and fun. I'll have more to say about this later on in the week once I get back up to blogging speed.

Finally, the book I've been waiting all year (and some of 2014, too) to read just released:



If you enjoyed author Anne Frasier's first two Elise Sandberg novels -- which were amazing -- you will definitely want to jump on this new installment.

So that's my news. What's up with you all?

  1. I'm trying to convince myself it's really September already. And it's hot. And I know I'll complain when it gets too cold, but right now--ugh. :-p~~

  2. Our fireplace is roughed in and ready to be covered. Now, if only we could decide on the same thing. And I spent $50 on books today because darn it, I wanted PAPERBACKS! and not eBooks! I've never read a Mary Balogh book that I can recall so we'll see how they are. Until they come, I can't decide whether I want to start Thornwood House by Anna Romer or Nice Dragons Finish Last by Rachel Aaron. Decisions, decisions...

  4. Well, over here in England it's rainy, rainy and rainy. People are even putting their heating back on because it's become quite chilly. We didn't really get a summer, sad to say.

    As for my books, I've just finished reading the Southern Sewing Circle books by Elizabeth Lynn Casey, I'm going back through J R Ward's Blackdagger Brotherhood on audio whilst quilting (on listening to Lover Reborn), and I'm reading Spellcasting in Silk by Juliet Blackwell and Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. I found Outlander as little slow to get into but it's beginning to grip my attention so I'll keep going.

    I'll add Anne Frasier to my ever increasing TBR list.
